The latest activities at the resource centre have been exciting in many ways! New building has started on the IT room and children’s library. This new section of the library will ensure that activities will be able to take place with children at the centre without disturbing other users. Isa, the centre’s librarian, has been continuing his hard work with community outreach. He has discovered that telling the children at the surrounding schools is not enough. As a result he has begun taking small amounts of books to the schools for the children to read and discover the fun that can be had with the different types of books. The centre has also had many visitors lately. Some regional representatives from Book Aid International visited and witnessed the new activities at the library. With Book Aid’s wonderful contributions the library has many different books ranging over many topics. They also met with some of the ladies that have started a craft club at the centre.Recently Isa held some celebrations for World Read Aloud Day on March 7th. He organized the children into groups and had many read to each other to practice their reading skills and display their abilities to the rest of the school. The celebrations were held at St. Florence Elementary School in Igombe. IT was a fun day with lots of learning and laughter.
As the construction of the resource centre continues the community continues to increase the use of the centres services. The craft club has been vibrant and excited to greet any guests that the centre receives. As the building moves forward the continued support of all supporters is much appreciated. A fundraiser for the centre recently took place in Brampton, Canada. The continued support of gracious donors has allowed for the building of large windows and doors for the children’s library. Soon the building will be completed and continue to be an even more valuable resource for the community.
